And The Lights Were Hung....

We are continuing with our Christmas in July posts here at One Crazy Stamper. 

Today my card features an older High Hopes stamp called "Lg. Christmas Mouse". He seems to have gotten himself in quite the predicament and it makes me giggle.

After colouring the stamp with alcohol markers I used my circle cutter to cut him out as well as a background piece of cardstock and popped him up with pop dots. I added silver Wink of Stella to the lights (where they join the cord) and clear Wink of Stella on all the light bulbs. An embossing folder gave me some texture on the piece of white cardstock behind him. The sentiment was typed on my computer and it came from the Twas the night before Christmas poem..I just changed a few words. The sentiment is adhered with pop dots and a mini clip with ribbon. Sparkly gumdrops and ribbon finish off my card.
